Eating after 8pm


Written by John Immel, Asheville, NC
Eating late at night provokes Kapha. When a person goes to bed with undigested food in the stomach, the food tends to stagnate both in the intestines and the blood, leading to weight gain. Sumo wrestlers in Japan gain weight by eating late at night. If you find yourself hungry at night, it means you missed your bedtime.

An apple can help suppress your appetite. Applesauce, rice, or almond milk are easy to digest, appropriate late night snacks that can help you get to sleep.
